Our upholstery workshop is situated in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, the home of British upholstery. Our craftsmen are passionate about “doing it right or not at all”, they follow the traditional methods of upholstery which to this day remain not only the best but also the right way to do things. This passion and love for their trade and the Authentic philosophy manifests in the beautiful pieces of furniture they create.
Our timber workshop is located in the heart of Suffolk where the traditions of cabinet making are renowned as some of the finest in the world. The workshop is literally like stepping-back in time into the handcrafted oak panelled hallway with grandfather clock, brass bell and traditional clocking in machine. They’ve been making fine furniture for over 70 years.
Every craftsman serves a minimum 4 year as an apprentice to hone their skills before advancing through the ranks to become a master craftsman who make our entrusted to create our Authentic cabinets, tables and bespoke designs.
Quality is the number one priority, each piece of furniture is individually handcrafted to order. There is no mass production using a production line and CNC machines, it is simply hand craftsmanship and pride in the furniture we design and make. Every piece is dated and signed off by the maker to give substance and the provenance of Great British craftsmanship.
